Hey hi hello!
It's suit season here in the mission. It will be until next General Conference. This week was pretty chilly, but it's getting warmer. We'll see how long it sticks around. It was a really good week. We were blessed with two new investigators! One is named Shibata-san and the other is named Mizuno-san. They both have pretty young families that are likely to become investigators, too. Mizuno-san is a woman that teaches Kids English class, so she speaks pretty good English. Shibata-san works at the local Mitsubishi factory making electronics, I think.
Ishida-san came to church again! We also invited him to baptism this week, but he is a little hesitant because he is old. He thinks baptism is good, though. O Ryoku-san was a little hard to get in contact with this week, but we met him on Friday and set up an appointment for tonight! Wish us luck.
So after the Friday before Halloween, everything changed to Christmas. The ads on the trains, decorations at the store, even the Colonel Sanders in front of the KFC was rollin all Santa'd up. We were like, "Hey Halloween hasn't even happened yet." We thought Japanese people just assumed it was on Friday, so we asked our English class students. They knew when the day was, but everything's all Christmas-y. Our branch is having a Thanksgiving Luau though, so that will be fun. It's in a couple weeks.
It's the second-to-last week of the transfer. I don't know if Elder Gillespie and I will be together for another transfer, but we both think it would be cool to be. Gillespie Choro and I get along really well. We have a lot of the same background and interests. He's from a family of all sisters and we both love to laugh and really like Star Wars. It's also very fun to make fun of Star Wars, too. We were kind of surpised by the new Star Wars coming out in 2015.
Well that's kind of it this week. Loves.
